If you are currently thinking "this sounds goods" "shall we?" Here is the answer.... It's is good in fact more than and do it, do it!!!! This experience was the highlight of our week. The tour was informative and paced nicely with clear communication and an approachable guide. Just past the trevi fountain we broke off into groups and entered the amazing restaurant which became our host. We were taught the art of making pasta ( will not give too much away) by an amazing delightful, charismatic chef and ate and drank the lunchtime away in an amazingly atmospheric place. This really is worth every penny.
Booked this tour as a surprise for my boyfriend on our holiday to Rome. What a great tour!
The short walk from Piazza Navona to the Pantheon, and then Trevi Fountain was a great way to start our tour. The tour guide was fantastic, and knew loads of interesting facts about the sights. He swapped between English and Spanish effortlessly and never left us feeling bored while translating for the Spanish-speaking tour-goers.
We had a short time (around 15 minutes) at each place to stop and take photos.
The cooking lesson was definitely the highlight of the day! There were 9 of us in our class, and the table was set up in the center of the restaurant. Fabio was a fantastic teacher and we had so much fun. We made cavatelli and ravioli, and were shown how to make 'bow tie' shapes with the scraps. While rolling the pasta for the ravioli it stretched right out the door! Once we had finished we all sat down and the food was brought out to us; it was delicious! The meal came with complimentary wine and bread, and we even had desert.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone considering it, it's a wonderful way to spend a morning in Rome, and such great value for money.
The walking tour was not very informative, but the Trevi Fountain spoke for itself! The cooking class was AMAZING! Favorite thing that I did in Italy!
Walking tour was okay. Good to get more info on the sights. Cooking class was amazing. Food was delicious. A must when in Rome!
We had an awesome time, the experience was so much better than expected! The walking tour was an 'added bonus' - we initially booked just for the cooking tour. We're so glad the tour was added on - we ended up seeing so much more and the tour guide was incredibly knowledgable.
The cooking class was fun, making two types of pasta and ending with a delicious dessert. The instructor was great and the other participants were so much fun. I really enjoyed getting to know all the Aussies in our group! Definitely recommend, and we'd do it again!
This was an amazing time! The walking tour sets the backdrop of the area and the cooking class is simply outstanding!!! Our hosts Fernando and Monica, truly make the experience wonderful and memorable. We would recommend this tour to everyone!!! Great little restaurant too, we will eat here again!!!
Our cooking lesson with Chef Maita was outstanding! There were only the two of us and she guided us through the process to make cavatelli, ravioli, and fettucine. After our preparation, they gave us wine while we awaited our dishes. They were delicious and we were given VIP treatment.
This tour is worth its weight in gold. Our tour guide for the walk was fabulous - full of knowledge about the history and with a bit of humour thrown in along the way. His english was great. The walk was just the right amount of time but the piece de resistance was the pasta making lesson at the end followed by lunch at a brilliant restaurant called Its Amour. We ended up eating there again the food is so amazing. Not expensive either.
This tour is a MUST DO.
Best event of the 7 tours we did in Paris and Rome. The rest host was beyond hospitable. Grt experience fro adults and kids. We liked it so much that we went back for dinner a few times afterwards
The cooking class at That's Amore was the best!!! The owner/chef showed us how to make pasta from scratch, he was was so nice and attentive. We loved it!! I would totally recommend this to anyone traveling to Rome, we can't wait to go back.
The cooking class was definitely the best part. The food was so good at "That's Amore" (the restaurant where we cooked) that we went back for dinner!!
Most memorable experience was the cooking class, would sign up again and highly recommend it!
It was fantastic good fun and the end result was yummy.
We would recommend if you are only looking for a lesson in making pasta and good fun, but if you are looking for something a bit for involved(sauces etc)look for another class
For us 10 out of 10

A lovely tour through some of the streets of Rome followed by a great cooking class. I was nervous about making pasta for the first time but our teachers gave great instructions, examples and encouragement. Eating what we'd made was very rewarding.
Great walking tour! Was just long enough to see some sights and learn about the history of what we were seeing. The cooking class was EXCELLENT! That's amore restaurant was friendly and participating in the cooking class was the BEST part of our trip to Rome.
This was an amazing tour - the walking tour was so informative, perfect speed and the guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining. I really enjoyed it! On to the cooking class - it was amazing! So fun, so informative and such a great way to spend a few hours. Fernando and Monica could not have been nicer. The restaurant is beautiful. We learned how to make fresh pastas - ravioli, bow tie, etc. Then when we finished, Fernando cooked an amazing meal for us. Absolutely delicious. There were 9 of us in class and we sat down to have the meal together - we enjoyed it so much we ended up staying another hour after we finished eating just chatting. We were from Germany, England, and the U.S. If you have a 4 hour block of time - definitely sign up for this tour! It is a great way to spend some time in Rome.
Private class, where I made 3 kinds of pasta and could ask questions and take pictures. The staff were excellent and I felt a part of the team.
The tour was good, a fast walk past some great sites it return to. Lots of great information and the guide was wonderful, even used her own phone to help me with a reservation.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely amazing during this tour and especially at the cooking class. I highly recommend using this service. They were extremely friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. The cooking class was absolutely perfect and so worth the money! We made amazing italian pasta that was one of my favorite meals while in Italy! The cook and the tour guide were both friendly and personal.
the tour was very late getting to where we were to meet and then we had to deal with one guide and two different languages to deal with. not on the walking tour web site.it was also way to short and not much more than we had seen the day before on our own. The cooking class was way too cool and everything we thought it would be. the best part was we only had 3 people in our class and got very good one on one help and more explanation on the in's and out's of how to and why to do it a certain way. loved it and will be using our new tricks at home at our next cooking day with our kids, would really be a shame to miss this class so take it and you will love it.
This was a good tour, the best part is of course the cooking class. The guide was very informative with the history of Rome. We were given some time to explore on our own in the Pantheon. The cooking class was fun, it was held at a restaurant called That's Amore. The person who taught us was Fernando, he was patient and encouraging. We made 2 types of pasta and they cooked it for us. The food was so delicious, unfortunately we had no room for dessert.
Fernando was wonderful and it turned out to be the best meal I had in Italy!
The cooking class was an excellent way to spend the afternoon. Set in the beautiful part of Rome just down from the Trevi fountain is That's Amore restaurant where I had my cooking class. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and chef Fabio was a wealth of knowledge. My only regret is I wasn't able to eat everything afterwards. If you love cooking or just want something different to do then definitely sign up for the cooking class.
We had so much fun!!!
We spent four days in Rome and the cooking class at "That's Amore" was definitely the highlight of our visit.
The walking tour was fine, gave us a sense of the area and a quick visit to the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain - but cooking with our small group (6 people) and Fernando in the middle of the restaurant was just so much fun!
Fernando taught us how to make three different pasta noodles from scratch, cavatelli, ravioli and with any mistakes we made linguini. :-)
This was not a boring class, we visited, laughed and had a blast through the whole thing - the ravioli pasta was so long we had to stretch out the door into the street. Random people stopped to snap our picture - ha!
Once the pasta was done it was wisked into the kitchen where it magically turned into three fantastic dishes, which of course we ate - along with a couple bottles of wine and scrumptious dessert and coffee.
We will cherish the memories from this afternoon forever!
FANTASTIC! Such fun! Walking tour was nice – then went to the restaurant. Staff there was wonderful and the food was EXCELLENT. Our group of 11 actually handmade the 3 pastas we had for lunch – and then the staff made the sauces. We ate as a group, and were given a website for the recipes!!
